Ease traffic congestion on Longridge Road/Bluebell Way

This petition had 934 supporters

This petition is to express our concern with the traffic congestion mostly during the evenings between the busy hours of 4:30pm – 6pm on Longridge Road, Bluebell Way and surrounding industrial estates such as Red Scar and Roman Way. The traffic is causing upset and frustration to commuters, local residents and businesses with commuting times 2-3 times longer at peak hours.

The problem has continued to get worse over the past 12 months with additional businesses and housing developments around the area being built. We believe it will continue to do so unless there is change in traffic signalling on the roads. The area is not far from junction 31a of the M6 and traffic light timings seem mismatched around this junction with traffic tailing back around the area. Junctions off Longridge Road trying to gain access to the motorway at peak times also encounter severe delays getting off Red Scar and Roman Way industrial estates as well as other large businesses; Recycling Lives and Booths for example.
